transformational speaking program
“Be the change you want to see in the world”
— Mahatma Gandhi
Warm welcome to our Transformational Speaking Program. The program is made up of three powerful weekend modules with open classes & program participant only classes in between modules to support you along your way. You are free to enter into the Program at Level 1 or Level 2 depending on your previous experience of speaking & personal development. You can only take the Advanced level if you have completed one or both of the first 2 levels first or the 3-day intensive. Here on this page you will find information on the 3 different levels of workshop that make up the whole program. The program is designed to offer you maximum flexibility to take part. You are welcome to complete the different levels in your own time, as you are also welcome to just come along to 1 individual workshop. It is highly recommended to repeat these workshops more than once to anchor the change deeper into your lives over time.
There is also an essentialized option of the entire course in 3-days which will act as a powerful catalyst for change in your life, it is not a replacement for the whole course but is offered as a stand alone mini-course which will either give you a powerful taste of the full program or if you have completed the program already it will act as a catalyst for anchoring the changes you experienced in the program deeper into your life.
What is Embodied Speaking?
Embodied Speaking is an integration of both the Speaking Circles work of Lee Glickstein & Doreen Hamilton in California &
Somatic Experiencing work of Dr Peter Levine. Embodied Speaking teaches us that when we take a moment to slow down, make contact with other human beings and take the risk of feeling what is happening right now in a safe space, a possibility opens to give expression to something deeper and more authentic in the present moment. This process helps to heal us from the anxiety of speaking in front of groups and instills in us a greater sense of self-confidence and freedom to express ourselves. This work supports a deepening of intimacy in relationship with ourselves and with others, so we can be more honest & genuine more of the time. Embodied Speaking is an approach that supports the healing of trauma around Speaking so we can really begin relaxing into ourselves & enjoying our lives more fully.
What are the benefits of the Embodied Speaking program?
- Overcome your fear & anxiety around public speaking.
- Develop greater confidence.
- Show up more fully in your life & become more present. Increased presence.
- Find a way of speaking and communicating that is most true to who you are.
- Improve your relationships and ways of relating to others.
- Meet some great people from diverse backgrounds and engage in a life changing journey with lovely people.
Video Recording & Self Reflection
During the program you have the option of being recorded on video camera whilst speaking. This recordings will be made available to you a few days after each workshop via WE-Transfer. No one else will view this recording, it is just for you and will be deleted 1 month after being uploaded to WE-Transfer. I have found this way of self reflecting to be extremely helpful to my personal development and highly recommend it. It offers a real reality check!!! As often we go into negative self talking after speaking and watching ourselves in reality can really help us to realise that we are not as bad as we think we are!
